Reader Request: Dark Dark Blues!

30 Jan

We’ve had a reader asking about deep blue polishes, so I decided to swatch some today. I have a vast collection of blues, but I could only find four that kind of fit the limitations of “a really nice colour in that sort of vein… dark blue, like almost black sort of, but still blue.” One of them doesn’t really fit this description at all, but it’s so pretty I’m going to show it off anyway.

Now I know that Miss MaSucree has a much larger collection of colours-that-are-almost-black than I do, so I enlisted her help as well.

Right, so here’s mine:

Peacock-Inspired Nails

26 Jan

So a couple of weeks ago I came across this picture in the Kleancolor Facebook group and thought, “Hey! That looks amazing. Maybe I’ll try it!”… They are some gorgeous sponged nails featuring peacock colours :3

So here’s the inspiration pic:

And here’s what I came up with!

Delindel’s Galaxy NotD

15 Jan

Hmm hmm hmm, let’s conveniently overlook the fact that I’ve been silent for almost a week now, and get right back into it with awesomeness and a bang! THE BIG BANG. I decided to make my very first attempt at some fancy nail art (i.e. not just a tape mani or some lovely layering) today, and thought I’d share both hands with you – the not-so-good practice on my left hand, and my slightly better-looking right hand when I started to get the hang of it XD

I am of course talking about the galaxy nail trend that has been around for a few months now. I used this tutorial over on Beautylish, but I’ve seen other tutorials that are basically the same thing floating around the internet.

Anyway, while they are by absolutely no means perfect, I’m quite pleased with them as my first try ^_^

MaSucree’s Kleancolor Nail Lacquer Swatches

11 Oct

Hello again!

It’s time for a Kleancolor nail lacquer swatch post. I own quite a few now and I haven’t worn all of them yet! Eeep! Time to pull finger and try them all out. I have been trying to look after my nails and from the photos Retro Green and Metallic Fuschia my nail and cuticles look a lot better! This also means I try not to paint them ac regularly.

Delindel and I purchase out Kleancolor nail lacquers from Beauty Joint. They’re $1.75 USD and they have pretty much all of the colours. You can also buy directly from the Kleancolor website.

Kleancolor is an amazing brand, Delindel and I have a vast amount of their cosmetics but our favourite would have to be their Nail Lacuers. Delindel loves the glittery ones but I love the Metallics ^_^ They dry super fast and last on your nails for ages, even all week at work you can hardly tell. So if you spot Kleancolor products definitely give them a go specially since they are so cheap!

MaSucree’s Latest Online Haul

14 Sep

Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been a while since you heard from me. I’ve been super busy! Some of it a good busy. I went on a library road trip yesterday for work, it was more fun than it sounds…honest. XD Maybe you have to been a Librarian to understand.

Anyway Delindel is not the only one who has been receiving parcels in the mail. Our second joint Beauty Joint order came today. This time it only took a week to come! Here’s what was inside:
